“There is no greater agony than bearing an untold story inside you.”

– Maya Angelou

In the Victorian Language of Flowers the pink rose represents “secret love” among other things.  The images above are of a leaf from a pink rose, shaped like a heart.  The meaning of the pink rose, the shape of the leaf, and the quote, collectively create a story.  Do you hold a secret in your heart?

  1. Oh, Robyn, this is so beautiful. It reminds me of one afternoon during the winter, several weeks after my dad died. The headstone had just been set, and I went to visit the site. There on the snow were several red rose petals. They had blown over from a nearby gravesite. The family had left a bouquet on the man’s grave (the anniversary of his birth date) and the wind had blown the loose petals. The man had been one of my dad’s dear friends in life, and it seemed he was reaching out to Dad, welcoming him, and assuring all was well.
